The Community Crisis Response Program (CCRP) works across Toronto providing support and resources to communities impacted by violent and traumatic incidents. The CCRP is activated when a violent incident occurs in any neighbourhood in Toronto, i.e., shooting or stabbing. It is a coordinated program of municipal services, police, community organizations, faith communities and residents to assist a neighbourhood’s response and recovery from traumatic incidents.
